Avenida Rio Branco - VLT - Plein Air Painting

I've always wished to open my easel in the middle of one of the busiest avenues in Rio de Janeiro. Now my dream came true. With the brand new design of Rio Branco Avenue, I can share the space with pedestrians cyclists and the modern VLT.
Plein air painting is an amazing opportunity to witness the urban landscape changing over time.

Cold winter afternoon at the beach

Low temps this week. This afternoon offered a great opportunity to sketch and capture the wet atmosphere at the beach of São Conrado, I intend to develop this composition on a larger format as I am very happy with the result.

 There's no substitute for the feeling of being in the great outdoors walking, hiking, cycling and painting
Plein air painting is challenging but it is a rewarding experience.
I'm sharing with you some of these moments when I paint and draw my way through life.
